Scrapbooking Charlie 12 x 12

Hello everyone,

I finally got back inot a bit of scrapping, haven't done any for months.  I have totally CASEd this layout from my upline, Nicki Tidbold, who kindly loaned me her scrapbook to get some much needed inspiration.  She does fantastic pages and I especially  love her boy pages.  She did this same page using Pumpkin Pie but I changed my colours to suit Charlie's swimmers.  Can you believe there is no patterned paper on this layout, it's all stamps.  So, if you can't find patterned paper to suit your photo - make your own.  I love how you can do that, it gives you much more control over colours and patterns. 

I think this little kick start was all I needed to get back into scrapping because my head is now swimming with ideas.  I'm working on another page at the moment and will post that one soon.

Stamps:  Confetti, Playful Pieces, Apple Blossoms, Pick a Petal, Trendy Trees, Just Perfect Alphabet
Paper:  Textured Basic Black, Whisper White, Pacific Point, Old Olive
Ink:  Basic Black, Old Olive, Pacific Point
Accessories:  Big Shot, Simple Letters Alphabet Dies, Linen Thread (coloured black with a Nikko), Stamp-a-ma-jig, White Gel Pen

Thanks so much for taking a look,
